It would be cool if right under the pool you made some sort of pedestal so that your most prized possession would get the pool light beaming down on it, I think that would be a neat concept.

How does those waterworld places do it then? Where you can go around in tunnels and watch fishes swim on the sides and over you?
-Well, the tunnels are smaller, and have a curving shape to them.
-The glass is also pretty thick.
-Usually, if not always, they are supported somewhere by beams of steel, made to look aesthetically pleasing to the eye, maybe so much that they go unnoticed.
-Lastly, your drawing is shown like a bucket type shape, supported at the sides, where the water is pulling down. Yet in "waterworld" places, the tunnels are built and water is put on top of them, and not pulling down as much. It's really hard to explain this last point.

If you put glass in the middle of the pool, say, about 40 inches wide and 30 feet long(the length of the pool) it would be possible because the glass only has to withstand the weight of the water directly above it. And there is all sorts of glass on the market today, toughened glass is available and it can withstand 5 times more than regular glass.

I like the idea but if I had f*ck you money I'd rather build an underground garage next to my pool and have a viewing window on the side of the pool that looks into the garage.
